    I remember reading many times over the last 2+ years about how hard Chrome is on a Mac laptop battery compared to Safari.

    I haven't owned an Apple laptop in years so I didn't pay much attention. But both of my kids in college have MBPs, so I advised them to use Safari.

    Though in the last 6 months I've read several articles claiming that Chrome has improved quite a bit in this regard.

    And since I just bought a new 13.3" MBA, I'm curious again. So how do you find Chrome vs. Safari lately with respect to battery life on Sierra?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hey, good morning.

    I have two users here in my office with MBP's and I'll ask them if they are using Chrome and about battery life if they are.

    My coworkers reported they are not really good seeing a difference in battery life between the two.

    I recently made a purchase of a new MacBook and also decided to ONLY Safari on it. I had chrome on others over the years but the battery life on my Macbook is just insane!! I can not kill it. I actually just grab it and go and don't even bother with the charger. I am sure that will bite me in the butt at some point, but right now it is amazing
